    DescriptionIt's all slipping away from Roc Molotov his band, his girlfriend, and worst of all, his ability to play the game demanded by the star-making machinery of the music business. When the best record he's ever made is about to pass unnoticed, his oldest friend and manager, Uncle Strange, concocts the perfect scheme. Roc will fake his death, on MTV, in front of millions of viewers, assuring massive success on his latest project and the ability to create a body of "posthumous" songs to feed the grieving fans and satisfy his still-active artistic imagination. The plan works to perfection, but the ever-restless Roc finds that being dead has its limitations in this novel that's sex, death, and rock n' roll, played in a satirical key."

    Review quote
    When aging rockstar Roc Molotov's manager suggests a scheme to fake the musician's death as a means of rebooting his career, Dead Brilliant becomes more than just a yarn draped in the tapestry of the current musical climate. MuchMusic alumni Christopher Ward delivers an over-the-top work of fiction filled with situations that could only come from someone who has spent years among the inner rings of the music industry.--Mike Bax
